The Englishman Philip Hamilton, the American David Morgan and the Irishman Smoke O’Connor are drafted into the Guards Division and report to their barracks at Caterham, Surrey. Philip and David are promoted to 2nd Lieutenant and Smoke to Corporal and now attached to a tank company of theWelsh Guards, where Philip and David command their own tank and Smoke is part of David’s crew. The film follows the three main characters as the Guards Armoured Division lands at Normandy weeks after D-Day, and on into combat as part of the break-out.
